Emmys: Stars Get Honey Boo Boo Nicknames
September 23, 2012
Kevin Frazier and Brooke Anderson were front and center on the Emmys red carpet to speak with TV's biggest stars -- from Kevin Costner to Mayim Bialik to Eric Stonestreet -- and the stars opened up about everything from their wardrobe choices to pre-award jitters to Honey Boo Boo Child!
Among the stars to stop by The Insider's red carpet platform was Emmy winner Eric Stonestreet, who addressed recent rumors he's been dating Hollywood A-lister Charlize Theron. He reiterated that the rumors were not true, although he did acknowledge the romance would not be completely "preposterous."
Brooke also spoke with The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik, who said she was excited to be nominated for her first Emmy Award. The star showed up on the red carpet still wearing a brace on her injured hand -- which she likened to something Catwoman might wear -- and spoke about how there had to be some creative shooting to hide the injury.
Kevin and Brooke decided to capitalize on the huge success of TLC's Here Comes Honey Boo Boo by having some of the stars generate their own name if they were a child beauty queen. Jane Krakowski gets a kick out of the Honey Boo Boo generator, which gives her the nickname "Jackpot Karma." Jane also talks about having a baby about a year ago and picking out her Emmy dress. 2 Broke Girls star Kat Dennings also gives the generator a try with hilarious results.
Christina Hendricks talks about the surge in Emmys for cable shows and also reacts to a photo taken from the 1999 TV series Undressed. Emmy nominee Kevin Costner talked to Kevin about starring in the History series Hatfields & McCoys and said it proves that the miniseries format is not dead.
Also stopping by was Lena Dunham -- creator and star of the HBO's comedy Girls -- who was nominated this year for three Emmy Awards; for Lead Actress in a Comedy, as well as for directing and episode and writing the show's pilot.
Watch the video for more red carpet interviews from additional stars -- including Homeland's Damian Lewis and Project Runway host Heidi Klum, who responds to a tweet asking "Why are you so hot?"
